Vogue Italia's Health Initiative

Steven Meisel shot a number of former models involved in the project, including Isabella Rossellini, Carolyn Murphy, Guinevere Van Seenus and Lauren Helm.

HEALTHY ATTITUDE: Isabella Rossellini appears on the cover of Vogue Italia’s June issue, which is entirely dedicated to Condé Nast International’s Health Initiative to promote a healthy attitude towards beauty.


“This month I’m turning 60 years old, and running after lost youth is not me,” said Rossellini, who was photographed by Steven Meisel. “I pay attention to what I eat, but I've gained ten kilos compared to when I was modeling, because your metabolism changes over the years.”


Along with the Italian actress, Meisel shot a number of former models involved into the project, including Carolyn Murphy, Guinevere Van Seenus and Lauren Helm.


“We should not wag our finger at fashion, which is used as a scapegoat for every social and health problem,” noted Helm, who is now a psychiatrist. “Food disorders are, in most cases, provoked by anxiety, stress and hyper-perfectionism.”


The issue, which hits newsstands Monday, will also be distributed in select pharmacies and design schools.
